God speaks to North Malawians in their own language

God speaks to North Malawians in their own language

The Rt Revd Fanuel Emmanuel Magangani is excited that members of his diocese will now have the New Testament in their own language.

Now each tribe has a Bible in their own language. We praise God for the work the Bible Society is doing in Malawi to enable people hear God speaking to them in their own language. It’s like the day of Pentecost that we now hear the word of God in every language of the people in Malawi.

Bishop Magangani is the diocesan bishop of the Diocese of Northern Malawi in the Church of the Province of Central Africa, a member province of the Anglican Communion. The recently completed translation began in 2004 and is the joint work of the Bible Society of Malawi and the Word for the World International. The project leaders hope to complete the Old Testament sometime in 2018. The Bible is being translated into chiLambaya, a language spoken by Ndali, Banyika, BaMambwe, BaNamwanga and BaBandya across northern Malawi, south Tanzania and western Zambia.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
